By Jennifer Setteducato - 09/17/2018
Brandon Famous, CBRE’s Americas leader for retailer representation, has been appointed chairman of the newly formed Global Retail Occupier Executive Committee. The 30-year retail real estate vet will help the committee establish and lead CBRE’s global strategy for advising retailers on cross-border expansion.

“Retailers now are more deliberate than ever in their expansion to new countries, focusing on positioning the right stores in the right markets instead of opening as many as possible,” said Anthony Buono, CBRE global president of retail.

“Brandon has substantial experience in international retail expansion, a solid understanding of the location analytics that underpin retailers’ site-selection decisions,”Buono added.

Appointed to the committee with Famous are Bryn Davies, CBRE senior director of Asia client development in Europe, the Middle East and Africa; Rebecca Pearson, CBRE associate director of Retail Advisory & Transaction Services in Asia; David Close, executive director and head of CBRE’s EMEA Retail Occupier practice; Tim Starling, head of CBRE’s Retail Occupier practice in Australia and New Zealand; and Melina Cordero, CBRE global head of Retail Research.
